同志悼慰 ◆ 悼官姐–來自澳洲的關心

★感謝何春蕤老師為忙碌的我們撰寫英文信
向國外妓權同志說明官姐去世的始末,
也替我們翻譯這一篇澳洲性工作者朋友們的悼慰文★

親愛的芳萍和日日春的姊妹們:

我僅代表性工作聯盟、澳洲性工作者協會及其他會員組織、以及澳洲許許多多性工作者,向各位表達我們對官秀琴的消逝感到萬分哀痛。

投身推動妓權是非常辛苦的工作,對我們而言甚至是一生的志業。

我們因著同道、同行、同志、同心推動妓權的人們,而得到力量,受到鼓舞,有勇氣繼續面對下一天的倡導工作。

我們的社群是我們生命的核心,其重要性不可言喻。

我們深知其中道理,因此也了解秀琴的消逝對各位而言一定是非常重大的打擊。

我們在此表達對各位的思念、關切、支持和敬意。

如果你們希望在性工作聯盟的網站上放置任何正式訊息或照片,請直接寄給我。

依蓮娜、潔芙瑞絲
性工作聯盟副總裁

原文如後:Condolences for the loss of Xiou-Qin Kuan

Dear Fang-Ping, Coswas, Jo Ho, Karl and other supporters we have met through the years,

on behalf of Scarlet Alliance, The Australian Sex Workers Association, and our member organisations, and many many Australian sex workers, please accept our condolences for the loss of Xiou-Qin Kuan.

Activism and dedication to sex worker rights is hard work and for many of us a life long committment. Our comerades, colleages, fellow sex workers and activists are what keeps us strong, inspired and courageous to face another difficult and challenging day of advocacy work. Our communities are so important, they are the centre of our lives!

Recognising this, the loss of Xiou-Qin Kuan must be effecting your community very much right now. We are thinking of you, sending you love, support and respect.

If there is a formal message or photos you would like posted onto the Scarlet Alliance website, please send it to me. We have recieved the messages from the NSWP and IUSW list (from COSWAS and Jo Ho). If you would like us to use the content of the emails for our website, please let us know,

Elena Jeffreys
Vice-President
Scarlet Alliance
